{ Impression Obsession DT challenge - Celebrating mom }

I created a card for Mother's Day. I am still playing with my crepe paper, except I have a white roll, too. I love it. I used CPS #160 for the card. I started with Core'dinations whitewash cardstock that has a green core. I embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The Making Memories journaling note is stamped with Cover-a-card Medallion (CC032). I wanted an imperfect impression of the background. I lay my stamp down and when I cover it with ink I don't apply an even color. After I lay my paper on top and press with my hand, I make sure I don't press evenly. I love the way it turns out...
I made the crepe paper rose with white crepe paper that I sprayed with Shimmerz Spritz, first. It was left over from another project so it was dry, but it doesn't take long. I added some hand cut leaves and pink ribbon.
The sentiment is from Greetings Galore (CL48) that is stamped on Granny's Doily Circle tag from Elle's Studio. This was such a fast and easy card.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the other designers' blogs for inspiration! Dina, Jeanne, JennyKathyJulieDeborah,and Laura.
